Installing Adobe Drive 5 for CS5.5 possible?

Aug 15, 2013 9:52 PM



I've been recommended to install Adobe Drive 5 to resolve a cross-platform issue that my clients have been experiencing when using Adobe Drive 3 (where the links don't update in InDesign CS5.5).


This was tested on a computer that had both InDesign 5.5 and 6.0 loaded on it, and there wasn't a performance issue.


However, it has not been possible to install Adobe Drive 5 onto a machine that only has InDesign 5.5 on it, as it gives an error message saying that it cannot locate CS6.


Is there any way to bypass this gatekeeper so I can install?


Has anyone experienced issues using Adobe Drive 5 with CS5.5?

    Adobe Drive CC (v5) only supports CS6 and CC desktop applications; there isn't a way to bypass this.


    With regard to the original problem; when opening a managed InDesign file cross-platform, the links to the assets (on DAM) then break? or?


    Also worth mentioning...the latest version of Adobe Drive 3 that was released for CS5 and CS5.5 products is v3.2; so would be good to validate regardless, if that version is being used.
